I feel so honored and blessed that I had the opportunity to interview Jane G. Meyer. She is a wife and mother, an Orthodox children’s book author, a baker, and has an amazing blog. She has written and published five books, one of which just came out. Her newest book, which is a beautiful story/parable, is called the Hidden Garden. It is a must read!
You can find out more information about Jane and her awesome books on Amazon and at http://www.janegmeyer.com/.
In addition to her wonderful books, she has a fantastic blog http://janegmeyer.wordpress.com/, where she shares stories, recipes, and ideas. It was there I learned, that in addition to her talent as a writer, she is a wonderful person! Through her stories and a wonderful video about her work, I learned how she bakes bread in bulk and gives it away to people in her community. What a wonderful example!
I am so thankful for all that she does for Orthodoxy and look forward to reading more of her books in the years to come!
Hello my Name is: Jane G Meyer
My patron saint is: Elizabeth, mother of the forerunner
As a child, my favorite children’s book was: I don’t remember having a favorite children’s book as a child. I learned to read somehow, when I was four, and my older brother used to show his friends how I could read books upside down. At some point, my vision flipflopped, and then I could read books right-side up! There are a few children’s books that I read for my own pleasure. Well, there are many. One of my longtime favorites is The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle by Beatrix Potter.
My job is: Freelance Writer; and Project Manager and Editor for Children’s Books at Conciliar Media Ministries.
What I love about my job: The stories, and working with the authors and illustrators! I love being a cheerleader of other people’s work…
If I could tell our youth one thing it would be: Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Love your neighbor! With those two things, you’ve pretty much got living a fulfilling and adventurous life covered and guaranteed!
